new sufjan stevens singles released for june pride 2019

has released a pair of new songs for June’s Pride Month and celebration of LGBT culture, “Love Yourself” and “With My Whole .”

You can hear both of the new songs below.

“Love Yourself” is based on a sketch Stevens wrote 20 years ago. The original 4-track demo he recorded in 1996 is included as well as a short instrumental reprise. “With My Whole ” is a completely new song that Stevens wrote as a personal challenge to “write an upbeat and sincere love song without conflict, anxiety or self-deprecation.”

Both tracks will be on a limited-edition 7″ vinyl due out on June 28th with proceeds from the sale of the 7″ set to support and homeless kids in America via the Ali Forney Center and the Ruth Ellis Center.
